Apparently it was NEWS because both the ABC and CBS stations in Portland saw
fit to cover it on the 11 pm news and they had no interest in promoting the
program.  I will admit that the NBC station gave it much longer coverage (4 to
5 minutes) while the other stations gave it more appropriate coverage.  (1 to
2 minutes.)
